Choosing VIP is choosing to stop the lionfish invasion. And you can do it yourself!
The lionfish is an invasive species in the Caribbean. Because they don’t have any natural predators here, they have the chance to multiply quickly, overtaking and killing native species, which results in a huge danger for the local environment and aquatic life on Bonaire. To control this invasion, it is (for certain people and under strict rules) allowed to hunt lionfish.
Guests of VIP Diving are able to experience the Lionfish hunt themselves and contribute to fighting this invasion by joining the Lionfish Hunter Specialty. This course consists of a knowledge development session, practice using the hunting tools, and two training dives actually hunting lionfish. Read more about the Lionfish Hunter Specialty course.
